There's been books, there's been relationship classes, there's been a multitude of romantic comedies, all exploring the topic being discussed today. The vast differences between men and women span far and wide, typically in the way we're brought up. Our surroundings and upbringing decide a lot of what we become, however when society, on the whole, says men must behave one specific way, that's when you get a lot of stories like these.


Reddit user, u/Original_Diamond_235, wanted to hear about:

Women, what do you not understand about men?

This All Really Depends If You Live In America

Unless I'm dead, don't call an ambulance. Yes I'd rather die than have to pay for it out of pocket. I have 6 dollars to my name.

Why do you say you love a woman, yet act so uninterested?

Never Saying What They Want

What they want in a woman.

I was dumped so I'm trying to figure out what was wrong with me.

Nothing

While its hard, if someone doesn't appreciate you for you, then they arent worth your time

burrito2303

Wait...Huh?

Honestly sometimes I don't get how oblivious some guys can be. In my personal experience this includes things that I feel like my boyfriend knows will make me upset, especially after 4 years of dating and living together for most of that time. Like its so weird to feel like someone knows you but doesn't?

All That Work To Only Lose Interest

they do everything to win a girl's heart and when the girl starts to like them back, they suddenly don't care about her at all. bro, just why?

Listen, Guys, Everyone Thinks It's Gross.

Spitting on the street - I have seen men do this in every corner of the world. What, exactly, are you spitting out and more importantly, WHY?

A Million Thoughts An Hour

The answer to the question: "What are you thinking?" Every time I ask my husband that, his answer his "nothing". How can you be thinking of nothing? Is it just him that does not think? Or is it just me that has thoughts all the time? Or am I just like most other women who constantly have some thoughts going through their minds?

My mind won't shut up about thinking something... there is always some thought going on, even if it is in the back recesses of my mind. I cannot think of any time that I was not thinking. My mind cannot be blank.

Tried And Failed

Why do you never talk about your emotions with us?

Haru1st

Men talking about their emotions is something that's almost never taken seriously. It's not something that has to do with a targeted effort by [society], but exists more as an established cultural byproduct.

A lot of men have usually at least tried talking about how they feel at one point or another during their life, realized it's usually an [exercise] in futility and learned from what is often an unpleasant experience.

Playing The Field

Okay serious question. I'm 30 and been in one relationship that ended 6 years ago. Haven't been in a relationship since.

Why do guys in my inbox tell me "you're so beautiful" or "let's do this" or "let's do that" but they're all over every girl that I see on social media? Commenting hearts on selfies when you're telling me you wanna date me? I don't understand, so I just stay away from everyone.

kindafitbutnot

Hedging [their] bets? The more they ask the higher the chance of someone being interested.

I like to think that (on dating sites at least) women get too much attention and shut down. And men get not enough and act out. And the ones that are left over are ones that thrive on attention

But I'm just a rando on the internet so who knows.

Desperation Dictates Action

How they can happily have sex with someone they despise. As a woman, I immediately lose all sexual interest in someone if they are a bastard, even if they are gorgeous. Men don't seem to care how awful someone is, they still want to bang them.

Frantastic79

It's like having to use the bathroom. If you need to piss, you'd prefer a nice hotel bathroom, but the gas station will do if you're desperate enough.

A Few Mysteries Wrapped In Easy-To-Take-Off Shirt

How do they always have warm hands[?]

How do they always know what that guy is really up to[?]

How do they pull their shirts off one-handed without like choking themselves in the neck or something[?]

Where Do They Get Their False Ideas From?

Why do you put so much value in the words/opinions of random men? Especially when it comes to thoughts on 'masculinity.'

Then-Nebula

Men do not have the same inherent value placed upon them by society that women have, so men have to seek approval from society, and hence from other men. Placing importance in the approval of other men is giving them a sense of being valued, that they matter to others.

No, Seriously, I'm Thinking About Silver Surfer Fighting The Walking Dead

When you say you are thinking about random, weird and unlikely stuff like pirate raids, zombies, space wars and what not, are you actually thinking of that? Or are you just trying to be funny?

Mostlymetrying

There Are No Answers. Just Pain.

Scrotums.

Did they just get a really bad deal or is there a reason it just hangs? Is it more fertile that way? I think about this whenever i get bored.

Also, if you could kick an ovary would it also cause cancer more easily or be as painful as being kicked in the nuts look like? Or are they just that unlucky? Or are they whiny? There are way too many questions like this in my head

Do They Do It To Feel Better About Themselves?

I don't understand why a lot of men (and mass media) slut shame woman. Men if you want more sex stop with the slut shaming. Pro-tip, woman want sex too, we just don't want to be shamed for it.

Society's Standards Are Falling Away

Why they rarely have a best friend, or friends, they can confide in and can be vulnerable with

misssplunker

It's because men can't open up a lot of times. Also in my experience I'm the guy who listens and is a problem solver. BUT when the shoe is on the other foot no one cares or listens to your problems or issues. When you do tell those people you hear "yeah yeah well here's what happened with me."

Truth be told I'd kill to have 2-3 guy best friends and have the same interests as me. Normally I only find them on video games lol. It's also a weird deal too when you meet a guy where you're like "hey that dude was cool" what are you going to do? Ask for their number? Rofl.

A Gelatin...Sword.

Why do men just passively play with their bits so much?

Maybe not all of them do this, but my current boyfriend does.

splatterwall

Dude it's like a gelatin sword but attached to your body

What Did You Expect To Happen?

Unless you're dealing with an extremly shallow woman, we don't care about your penis. What's up with that ?

Also, while it never happened to me yet (thanks God), apparently it is somewhat common for men to send unsolicited pics to women... what are you expecting ? I genuinely don't understand, at all.

GrosChatBreton

Sometimes, They're So Simple

One time, I saw a stand-up comedian say, "Women, if you haven't figured out men then you're thinking too hard."

BillyJayJersey505

Yup. most men are really simple. We say something? That's what we mean.

Praise-Mothman

It Has A Name. And It's Brilliant.

How they lose interest in anything sexual the moment they climax. It's like my husband is ready to go hunting minutes after sex is over. Like a brain switch happens 🤷♀️

True as can be, I start thinking about my to-do list immediately and try to fight it.

Have you ever been reading a book, watching a movie, or even sitting down for a fantastical cartoon and began to salivate when the characters dig into some doozy of a made up food?

You're not alone.

Food is apparently fertile ground for creativity. Authors, movie directors, and animators all can't help but put a little extra time and effort into the process of making characters' tasty delights mouthwatering even for audiences on the other side of the screen.

Read on for a perfect mixture of nostalgia and hunger.

AllWhammyNoMorals asked, "What's a fictional food you've always wanted to try?"

Some people were all about the magical foods eaten in the magical places. They couldn't help but wish they could bite into something with fantastical properties and unearthly deliciousness.

Nutritious

"Enchanted golden apple" -- DabbingIsSo2015

"The Minecraft eating sounds make me hungry" -- FishingHobo

"Gotta love that health regeneration" -- r2celjazz

"Pretty sure those are based off the golden apples that grant immortality. Norse mythology I think?" -- Raven_of_Blades

Take Your Pick

"Nearly any food from Charlie and the Chocolate factory" -- CrimsonFox100

"Came here to say snozzberries!" -- Utah_Writer

"Everlasting Gobstoppers #1, but also when they're free to roam near the chocolate river and the entire environment is edible." -- devo9er

Peak Efficiency

"Lembas" -- Roxwords

"The one that fills you with just a bite? My fat a** would be making sandwiches with two lembas breads and putting bacon, avocado and cheese inside. Then probably go for some dessert afterwards. No wonder why those elves are all skinny, eating just one measly bite of this stuff." -- sushister

Some people got stuck on the foods they saw in the cartoons they watched growing up. The vibrant colors, the artistic sounds, and the exaggerated movements all come together to form some good-looking fake grub.

The One and Only

"Krabby patty 🍔" -- Cat_xox

"And a kelp shake" -- titsclitsntennerbits

"As a kid I always pretended burgers from McDonalds were Krabby Patties, heck from time to time I still do for the nostalgia of it all. Many of my friends did the same thing." -- Thisissuchadragtodo

Cheeeeeeeeese

"The pizza from an extremely goofy movie. The stringy cheese just looked magical lol" -- ES_Verified

"The pizza in the old TMNT cartoon as well." -- gate_of_steiner85

"Only bested by the pizza from All Dogs Go to Heaven." -- Purdaddy

Get a Big Old Chunk

"Those giant turkey drumsticks in old cartoons that characters would tear huge chunks out of. Those things looked amazing, turkey drumsticks in real life suck and are annoying to eat."

-- Ozwaldo

Slurp, Slurp, Slurp

"Every bowl of ramen on any anime, ever." -- Cat_xox

"Studio Ghibli eggs and bacon" -- DrManhattan_DDM

"Honestly, any food in anime. I swear to god half the budget no matter what the studio goes into making the food look absolutely delicious." -- Viridun

Finally, some highlighted the things that aren't quite so far-fetched, but still far enough away that it's nothing we'll be eating anytime soon.

That tease can be enough to make your mouth water.

What's In It??

"Butter beer" -- Damn_Dog_Inappropes

"came here to say this. i was pretty disappointed with the universal studio version which was over the top sweet. it was more of a butterscotch root beer. i imagine butter beer to be something more like butter and beer, which wouldn't be crazy sweet, but would have a very deep rich flavor" -- crazyskiingsloth

Slice of the Future

"The microwave pizzas in back to the future two" -- biggiemick91

"I've been fascinated with those for years! They just look so good!" -- skoros

As Sweet As They Had

"The Turkish Delight from Lion Witch & Wardrobe. The real ones I had weren't bad but nothing special." -- spoon_shaped_spoon

"Came here to say this. I know it's a real thing, but I always imagined that it must have been amazing to betray your siblings over." -- la_yes

"You're used to freely available too sweet sweets. For a WW2 era schoolkid, it would have represented all the sweets for an entire year." -- ResponsibleLimeade



Here's hoping you made it through the list without going into kitchen for some snack you didn't actually need.

When a movie rakes in a ton of cash at the box office, the studio that made it has only one thing on its mind: "How do we keep shaking this money tree?"

Unfortunately, that means they make sequels, sometimes sequels on sequels on sequels.

Oftentimes I like to do my best Ghostface impression and aggressively ask people what their favorite scary movies are. Because I personally have a lot! At the same time, I'm also terrified that at any point, I could end up getting my head punched off by Jason Vorhees (Part 8 of the series--best one IMO).

I hate hypocrites. They are the bane of my existence. All you have to do is stand behind your words. How hard is that? You said them. I especially get peeved when people bloviate on a topic and condemn and holler but then when it comes to them doing it... silence.

Redditor u/ErrForceOnes wanted to know about the moments people chose to curiously "pay no mind" by asking... What is a GIANT hypocrisy that no one seems to mind?
